Crime Reports – Moraga (“You’re So Remote,” Anything For An Education, Methy Driver)


Thanks, NEWS24/680 People, for your calls and emails about the Moraga Blotter. We’re glad you like them. Here are a few of the latest cases handled by the men and women of the Moraga police department:

Remote Frame-up

On June 2, Moraga police were sent to a home in the 600 block of Moraga Road on a report of a couple in the midst of a heated argument. Officers contacted the pair, the male half telling them that in the midst of the argument his girlfriend began hitting herself in the head with the television remote control. That was kind of a first but the caller told officers he did not want to be “framed” for assault by remote control and that’s why he called police. Officers convinced the couple it would be best to seek separate housing – and remote controls – for the rest of the evening, which was done.

Methy Driver

A day later, at 1:03 p.m., officers stopped a car virtually in front of police headquarters at 329 Rheem Valley Blvd. and commenced a search of the car after securing permission from the driver, according to police. Officers allegedly found a “substantial” amount of methamphetamine and paraphernalia in the car and they arrested the driver and took him to police offices for processing, while the passenger was allowed to stay with the car. The driver was eventually cite released from the police station.

An Education To Steal For

Moraga police were contacted by a resident on June 4, the local man telling officers that someone had attempted to obtain a student loan in his name while also accessing two of his bank accounts. Officers noted the incidents at the victim’s request and instructed him on how to deal with them.

Return Of The F-150 Bandit?

Those Ford F-150s are popular – with buyers and car thieves alike, apparently, as another one was allegedly swiped from its space in the 1400 block of Camino Peral on June 7. This latest incident comes after a flurry of similar thefts of similar trucks in the area last year.


  1. I asked one of our local officers about meth and whether or not they see it in our area and he just said its everywhere. Hard to believe.

  2. My woman started hitting herself with a remote during a fight once. I handed her a fork – there was a game on I wanted to watch.
